qb/rb ??? whir always

Postby k_dubya » Fri Sep 09, 2011 4:09 pm

Josh Freeman vs DET or
Ben Roethlisberger vs BAL

Foster vs Colts
Blount vs DET
Mendenhall vs BAL

Td worth 6 +3 for td 20-30
+6 for td 30-40
+9 for td 40+

RB 1 point every 20 to 100 yes then 1 point every 10 yds +3 bonus @ 100 yds
QB 1 point every 50 yds to 300 then 1 point every 10 yds. +3 bonus @ 300 yds

Just an example. Drew Brees scored 45 last night against GB.

Post a link for the hit back.
Thanks ahead

Freeman has the higher upside it what should become an offensive battle. Steelers Ravens is notoriously low scoring.

It looks like Arian Foster may be benched so I think the RB decision is going to be made for you. It sucks that you are going to have to watch the inactives list week 1 for that call.

Help on mine, kind of related to yours actually.

Freeman... I don't like and will never like Ben vs the Ravens. His career vs Baltimore - 10 games, 210 yds/gm, 16 TDs, 13 turnovers. Not very impressive by any means. Freeman will outscore Ben this week.

If Foster is healthy, I'd sit Mendenhall. Foster is the top RB in the NFL, and Blount has a much better matchup than Mendy.

Here's mine...

It sounds like Foster is sitting, so I think that decision won't be to tough. If Foster does play, go with him and Blount. And go with Freeman. He should at least throw for 200+ yards and 2 TD's. That Ravens/Steelers game should be a defensive slugfest.

I like Freeman, Foster; and Mendenhall over Blount but just barely (you could almost flip a coin on those 2). Of course, watch Fosters situation this weekend. I'm seriously doubting he goes and I hope thats a 12:00 game for ya.

Thanks for your help!!

Freeman. And if you can check an hour before game time and Foster's playing start him and Blount. If you have to pick now, bench Foster because there is no word yet either way.

Good luck! ;-D I could use a thought or two...

thanks for the help.

with the QB situation both are good starters to me actually. i know Ben is playing the ravens but the point totals when those two face have not really been an issue for passing but for rushing. However, Freeman throwing against the Lions whose pass defense is not that great is a good choice too. I would also have to go with Freeman considering he's not just a QB, he's an athlete. 2nd on rushing yards last year for QBs (of course being behind Michael Vick) so one would have to wonder if he can actually get a rushing TD this year.

With the RB situation, that might be decided for you. Foster is more than likely not going to start so go with Blount. Unfortunately the Lions D is good against the run, but considering Blount had over 1,000 yards last year and didn't play all 16 games makes it look pretty good.
